Apple will reveal its much-awaited iPhone within a few months. However, rumors about the tech giant upgrading both its features and designs are already doing the rounds.
According to leaks, the iPhone13 lineup is not far off the mark from their “12” counterparts. Just like the iPhone 12 lineup, the new edition will consist of four models, namely iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. The leaks negate the recent debate about the ‘mini model’ not seeing the light of day.
According to noted Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, better camera focus will be among the few upgrades the phone will feature.
A look at the iPhone 13 dummies suggests that the square-edged design of the iPhone 5 might make a comeback. According to several leaks, the new iPhone will feature improved cameras and a 120 Hz display for the first time.
As per the dummies, the most significant design upgrade will be the positioning of the camera—as opposed to sitting vertically, they will now appear diagonal. The design upgrade has confused a better part of the design pundits.
Sonny Dickson, a Twitter user, shared the images of the four dummies. He tweeted, “iPhone 13 and 13 Pro dummies. All 4 sizes are still in the running. Camera module placement changed on the regular 13s. ProMax looks slightly larger.”
Despite reports from several credible sources, including the Wall Street Journal and a few others, the new iPhone 13 will not feature the in-display Touch ID fingerprint readers.
An article published by Forbes mentions, “Touch ID retains a devoted following and its return has been increasingly championed during a global pandemic where masks have made Face ID less practical.”
Despite a few key features missing from the new iPhone, there is a lot in it to make customers happy. Along with introducing supersized rear cameras, the iPhone 13 will feature a 5G modem along with an A15 chipset.
Predictions about Apple reintroducing a pink edition of the phones due to customer pressure are doing the rounds. Rumors about several design upgrades such as multi-colored editions of the phones are also widely becoming known.
“Apple’s iPhone 13 models no longer look like the game-changers initially predicted but they are still clearly solid upgrades on their predecessors,” as per the Forbes article.
